Lipa has been nominated for her acclaimed second album ‘Future Nostalgia’, while Charli XCX will compete with ‘How I’m Feeling Now’ – her fourth album which was recorded entirely during lockdown at her Los Angeles home studio.

Reviewing Stormzy’s Mercury nominated album, NME said: “Stormzy came out swinging for his second album – it’s big, it’s broad and it is mostly brilliant.”

“‘Uneasy is the head that wears the crown’, wrote William Shakespeare. After listening to this new album, we’d say Stormzy is handling things just fine.”
